The Opole project - construction of Units 5 and 6 in the Opole power plant that belongs to the PGE Group, with a total electrical power output of 1800 MWe, is the largest energy investment after the change of political system (1989) in Poland.
Construction works on a coal-fired power plant units with a total capacity of 1 800 MWe began in February 2014. Its value is PLN 11.5 billion gross, of which some 42%, or PLN 4.83 billion, is for Polimex-Mostostal.
The contract is executed in the EPC formula (Engineering, Procurement, Construction).
The two coal-fired units, with gross power output of 900 MWe each, will consume a total of about 4.1 million tons of coal annually.
The use of the latest technologies will allow achieving a net efficiency of approx. 46 percent and the reduction of emissions, including carbon dioxide emissions, by about 20 percent per energy output unit. The new Units will generate a total of 13.4 TWh of electricity which is almost 8 percent of total domestic production in Poland.
The Units for PGE GiEK in Opole are executed by a consortium of Polimex-Mostostal, Mostostal Warszawa and Rafako (the scope of the latter is subcontracted in its entirety to GE Power).
Polimex-Mostostal’s scope provides for the delivery and erection of turbine islands, cooling water system with 185-meter tall cooling towers, complete electrical and I&C works, roads and rail tracks as well as external BOP systems.
Gross power of each of the units is 900 MWe
